The view from the hidden ledge

  • Description 

    A ledge located above Beginner's Luck which currently contains one line in the center of the ledge. Excellent morning sun as it is entirely above the treeline.

    It isn't really "hidden" in that it is hard to find as it can be plainly seen from Chockstone or the top of Fresh Meat and Paradox but it has remained dormant through 3 decades of development at Upper West.

    Getting There 

    1. Climb Beginner's Luck.

    2. Climb Rented Mule and climb over the anchors.

    3. Climb Fresh Meat and traverse left.

    4. Climb Paradox and traverse left.

Link a few fun, powerful moves through the roof to a decent rail. From the rail the next two moves can be either 5.9 or 5.10d depending on which direction you decide and you'll know when you reach the hero jug which way you went. A tough mantle leads to a good stance that some people can manage to get no hands although I've n...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
